Freshman Paul Rabil scored three goals and Peter LeSueur added two as top-ranked Johns Hopkins slipped by No. 19 North Carolina yesterday in Chapel Hill, N.C., for the 12th straight time, 7-5.

Both teams played great defense in a game delayed for 45 minutes in the third period by lightning.

The Tar Heels (2-6) limited the Blue Jays to their lowest goal output of the season as Paul Spellman made 10 saves. Hopkins sophomore Jesse Schwartzman finished with 12 saves and allowed only five goals on 32 shots. The Blue Jays took 33 shots.

After a scoreless first quarter, Rabil got the Blue Jays (6-0) started with back-to-back goals in a span of less than two minutes.

The Tar Heels trimmed the deficit to 2-1 entering halftime on Rob Driscoll's goal. The three combined goals are the fewest in the first half of a Johns Hopkins game this season.

LeSueur answered North Carolina's first second-half goal with back-to-back goals in a span of 62 seconds to push the lead to 5-2 and put the game out of reach.

The 6-0 start is the first for Hopkins since 1995.
